Where is Truth?

“In Him should all fulness dwell” – Colossians 1:19

The following message was preached in Honiton Sovereign Grace Church on Sunday 21st December 2008.

“In Him should all fulness dwell” Colossians 1:19 21-12-08 (Ian Potts)

The Foundations – Psalm 11:3

“If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do? The LORD is in his holy temple, the LORD’s throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.

The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.  Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.

For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright.”

The Truth of God has foundations and the foundational truths of the Gospel are constantly under attack. Often I receive enquiries from people asking about certain aspects of the truth, questioning it, doubting it, at times attacking it. “What is the kingdom of God?”, “Who is the Holy Ghost?”, “Is Jesus Christ God?”, “Does one need to hear the Gospel to be saved?”

The answers to such questions are vital. We must have a reason for the hope that is in us. Here are a number of messages which address various aspects of the truth which are often a source of enquiry. May God use them to establish His people in the word and set them firmly upon the one true foundation of His church – the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Gospel
